    How easy/difficult/time consuming is it to stain a cedar fence? I have about 95 feet of grayed weathered out 6′ cedar fence (actually, double that length because I’d have to stain both sides). Is this a project that an amateur like me could do in a day or two and have it look nice, or is it something that is worth hiring out? Is one coat adequate, or are multiple coats required?

    I freaking hate doing anything resembling painting, but I also hate paying for services that most people should be able to do themselves.

    You could knock it out in a weekend. If anything I’d rent a sprayer and do it quick and easy. You will want to pressure wash it too. My neighbors did their fence, way more than what youd have to do, in a weekend with a sprayer.
